Dublin’s new crewcut flat development skyline requires some bending and reshaping. The technology exists in the UK as one can see on the London skyline especially the new apartment developments along the Thames. Dublin sorely lacks ellipses, parabolas, feature steelwork even a few reverse bends and tube manipulation. Right angle you have ruled Irish steel for far too long give bending a chance. Does the technology exist here ? apparently not !

Apart from the technolagy but the gumption does'nt exist either.
Visit our new Dublin docklands if ye have'nt already. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! What a boring site to behold.

....it will take a few decades for the dopes to get their heads around that here.

Embarassing , if not shameful is'nt it.

Suppose one of the few/only examples is the Herbert Park developement in Ballsbridge, which proves that we do have the technology...

Rumour has it that they knocked down some trees to build it too... My god and to think those same trees could have witnessed the Battle of the Boyne... Disgraceful !! :(

sure they could have been the oldest trees in the world at 5000 yrs old as well... Think about what we have lost !! :mad:

Ok please excuse my pathetic sarcasm... just can't understand people sometimes... :confused:

Fair enough but have you seen that hotel in reality ?!? The cladding is an absoute disgrace - it looks horrible !! I was so disappointed with it as it had massive potential...

Only hope is that is that in the future maybe they will reclad it, but considering Munchin house is still facing it, i won't hold my breath !!

The initial sketchs for this hotel were pretty cool... there was a single pier located in and protruded out of the water which made it pretty dramatic...
